Tape Land 129 – FEN Beyond the Range of the Groove (March 1990)

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is tapeland5_300.jpg

1:13:33 – Welcome to Tape Land! On each episode, I’ll present the audio of a cassette tape or historic material from my personal archives.

Another great find! The tape itself just has “FEN” (my initials) written on it, and I don’t think I’ve ever heard it since I recorded it. It’s a rare window into the world of 1990 – 31 years ago! At the time, I was working on my “Nomadi” project which I would rename “Obliviana” soon thereafter. After going through many bizarre phases, Obliviana would eventually lead to The Onsug that we know and love today.
